Cafe Un Deux Trois has been located in the heart of Times Square since 1977. We opened when the neighborhood was still very rough , and quickly became THE brasserie to stop for dinner and drinks before heading off to Studio 54 and Xenon to dance the night away.
We were and still are frequented by American and European theater and film actors, as well as politicians, directors, local New Yorkers and tourists from around the world. You will find many a Broadway cast and crew member hanging out after the show on any given night.

We recently had a facelift featuring enormous windows and a new color scheme.
The food while still classic bistro fare has expanded to include a variety of sandwiches, hamburgers and an extensive breakfast.
We have also added a selection of savory and sweet crepes to our dining choices.

I love this place, but was disappointed this week. A few of us ordered the quiche which is usually amazing, but this time the pieces were substantially smaller than usual and overcooked. Our server was not very attentive and one person did not get their full order when lunch was served and we had to ask 2x before we got it. The food is typically very good and most enjoyed their meal. For the quiche, the value is not there anymore since the serving size was so small.

The food was good. The ambiance is also good. The service, however friendly, was fair at best. We had to remind the waiter several times about orders that were missed. The waiter reached across the table often to deliver/retrieve food or utensils despite plenty of space to access all points of the table.

Everything was wonderful. Just a bit crowded and loud in the beginning because it was between shows on Broadway. Food was incredible as always.

Overall very good. Attentive service. Food is a fusion of French and American. Personnel is also a fusion of Americans and surprisingly Mexicans and other Latinos. Very little french but an enjoyable experience.

the food was delicious, decor and ambience charming, but most of all I was impressed with the service. from the friendly "bon soir" of the maitre'd when we walked in to the waiter who said we need not worry about getting to the theater on time, it was their job to hurry if need be, we felt very welcome and well taken care of. merci cafe un deux trois!

My friend was delayed in getting to the restaurateur as ten result of travel issues. The restaurant could not have been nicer. I was seated and the waiter was attentive and made sure that I had a drink and bread while I was waiting. It gave me a very nice feeling about the restaurant and returning.

The food was so so and overpriced. My Cosmo drink was good but overpriced at $16.

The service was very bad. The waiter must have been in training which is odd since it was a busy Wednesday night, pre-theater at 6 pm.

True NYC experience with a splash of France. Classy setting. If you want cold high gloss trendy then look elsewhere. If you want warm and classy original NY then this is it.

Perfect spot for pre or post theater dining. The menu is varied, the food is very good, the service is attuned to your need to make curtain time and the prices are very fair.

Have been here many times and had wonderful servers, food, etc. So I was very disappointed with this experience. Our server seemed to forget we were even there. It was almost impossible to get his attention. Despite his lack of interest, our food did get to us hot and was as good as usual.

A party of six, and everyone thought their food was fantastic! Sort of unheard of in our group, LOL, there's usually/always someone who didn't like the food. Had appetizers, drinks and desserts too. Staff was friendly and helpful, from taking coats to recommending items on the menu. Will be back again. :)

Cafe Un Deux Trois is consistently good. Food is quite good and the service is always attentive. I had the crabcake special and it was very tasty and exactly as described. I have been there with friends or alone and they give everyone special attention. Great taste, great service, great ambiance in a great location for dining before or after the theater.

Terrific location in between matinee and evening performances in the Theater District. Food was very good...very hot..and came out in good time...especially, when dining pre-theater. Wait staff courteous and attentive as was the maitre d'...will definitely return to this lovely French Bistro.

Never disappoints for a great lunch. The salads and omelettes are very tasty and the service is always good. The room is as bright and pleasant as ever, even though it's been around for years. Perfect for pre-theater.

An established pro at turning out good french inspired dishes in time to make the show. Goat cheese salad was inspired in execution. Colorful baby tomatoes riding an endive leaf and crisp greens throughout with nicely toasted goat cheese was a great lead into a main of calf's liver. Likely to return on another pre-theater evening.

One of our favourites places in NYC — the affordable Balthazar! Each and every person is helpful, warm and friendly, kind, and attentive. We could’t ask for more.

The oatmeal was barely cooked and just not eatable. The side order of strawberries were terrible also. Not ripe at all so all white in the inside w no flavor. Coffee wasn’t good either. The only good thing was that it was quiet for a business meeting. All three of us ordered the oatmeal so it wasn’t a fluke.

Convenient, nice spot for brunch prior to a Sunday matinee. Unfortunately, the service was unnecessarily slow. Our waiter was not particularly attentive. We were not in a rush so it was OK but it could have been better. The food was good and consistent with our expectations. The room has a nice french brasserie atmosphere.

The crepes were delicious. I had the spinach, goat cheese and mushroom crepe with the side salad. Two other people at our table had crepes, also.. the salmon one and the chicken one. We all raved about them. The were HUGE, just stuffed with delicious filings. We will definitely return here.

Wonderful experience, We were celebrating two birthdays and the waiters came over and sang and all the patrons joined in with the singing.
The food was great and by NYC standards the prices were reasonable.
Everyone had a great time.

I made a Brunch reservation for myself and my roommate from college whom I haven’t seen in 28 years!! Understandably, we had a lot of catching up to do. Our server was wonderful. He let us sit for two hours to talk. He even came with fresh cups of coffee at one point! We both had the quiche Lorraine which of course was delicious! I have eaten at Cafe Un Deux Trois quite a few times for lunch and dinner. It’s in a great location, the price is right, and the food is great. But it’s the little things that you do that keep me coming back! Thank you!
